The Madness Of Crowds: iPads 2 Hitting $1,699 On Ebay

There’s a great deal of cash changing hands right now for iPads. Some are selling their old ones while others are, inexplicably, paying $1,500 and more for new ones. Gearlog did a quick search, finding even lowly 32GB versions topping out at $860.

I, personally, try to remain agnostic about the tablet race and I find the Android tablets to be acceptable for those not willing to enter Apple’s ostensibly walled garden (which is probably very nice this time of year). But, as Gearlog’s Brian Heater notes, “For those who absolutely need a tablet, there are still plenty Xooms available, apparently.” Numbers, friends, do not lie.
